Hospital Negligence

Baltimore-Washington Hospital Negligence Attorney

Fighting For Your Rights In The Local Community For Over 20 Years

Hospital negligence is a form of medical malpractice. It occurs when a patient is seriously injured or dies in a hospital setting, due to errors made by doctors, nurses, and other hospital staff. The most common forms of hospital negligence include surgical procedures gone astray… a hospital infection…improper use of medical devices… a medication error… improper use of anesthesia… and leaving surgical instruments or other object (such as a sponge) in a patient after surgery. Birth injuries can fall under hospital negligence as well.

If you or someone you love has suffered due to this type of medical malpractice, you should not delay contacting an experienced hospital negligence lawyer. The law offices of Joseph H. Ostad can help.

We’ve successfully represented dozens of people who’ve suffered devastating injuries as a result of hospital and personal injury negligence. Victims deserve the right to receive proper compensation for their medical expenses, lost wages, and most importantly pain and suffering. Our firm will do whatever is necessary, under the law, to fight on your behalf.

The biggest challenge with all hospital negligence cases is burden of proof. In order to win a case, you have to prove that hospital staff truly performed negligently and breached the standard of care and this was the cause of the injury or death. An unsuccessful surgery does not necessarily constitute hospital negligence or medical malpractice. There are several gray areas when it comes to injuries caused by incorrect treatment of a diagnosed illness.

That’s why it’s so important that you have an experienced medical malpractice attorney on hand to help you determine if your case has a chance. For these cases, you’ll also benefit from our established team of experts to help prove your case. For example, a certificate of merit from a medical doctor within the same specialty must be provided to confirm and allege malpractice was committed.
